She cooked the breakfast first of all,

Washed the cups and plates.

Dressed the children and made sure

Stockings all were mates.

Combed their hair and made their beds,

Sent them our to play;

Gathered up their motley toys,

Put some books away.

Dusted chairs and mopped the stairs,

Ironed an hour or two;

Baked a jar of cookies and a pie,

Then made a pot of stew.

The telephone rang constantly,

The doorbell did the same;

A youngster fell and stubbed his toe

And then the laundry came.

She picked up blocks and mended socks,

Then she polished up the stove;

And when her husband came at six

He said, “I envy you!

It must be nice to sit at home

Without a thing to do!”
